ffarmer. BEREMAN 4 WILSON, Proprietors. WADENA, MINNESOTA. Ohio has anew law requiring all ex ecutions to take place within the walls of the State penitentiary at Columbus, in the presence of only a few witnesses. The first hanging under the new law took place a few days ago, and was con ducted decently and in a mechanical point oi view most successfully. Pub lic opinion undoubtedly apxroves this law and will never permit its repeal, unless for a very good reason, which certainly has not yet been suggested. Advance sheets of Poor's Railroad Manual for 1885, show that at the close of 1884 there were in the United States 125,150 miles of railroad. The additional "ic'uc^n« an sidings and double track, an(t'rolii?iy stock, was $0,924,554,444, or some thing over fifty-five thousand dollars per mile. The roads represented, how ever, a total investment of $7,676, 399,054, of which $3,962,616,086 was capital stock, $3,669,115,772 bonds.and the balance unfunded debt. The San Francisco Daily ...

'JSM BEREMAN & WILSON, Proprietors. WADENA, MINNESOTA. The temperature of August will not be so high as July, but it promises to be higher than during many preceding years. A paper was read the other day be fore the Chicago Medical Society, by Dr. W. F. Coleman, which took the "round that the use of tobacco caused impairment of the sight, and cases were cited of recovery of sight after ceasing smoking. The actual cost of General Grant's funeral in New York is estimated at one million dollars, exclusive of the transportation of vast bodies of peo ple from distant localities. But it was the most magnificent' demonstration of the kind the world ever knew, as it deserved to be. The New York Commercial Bulletin estimates the fire losses in the United States and Canada during July at $9, 000,000, an increase of one-third over the average July fire waste for the past ten years. During the seven months of the present year the fire loss has been $60 000,000. Illinois leads all the States...

it ffa*tt*jcv. BEREMAN &, WILSON, Proprietors. WADENA, MINNESOTA. All the eastern journals note abettei feeling in business circles, but the act ual business improvement does not warrant a great deal of exultation. A partial restoration of confidence, how ever, is something gained towards bet ter times. It is expected that a tremendous pressure will be made upon the Secre tary of War in behalf of the military pets of social life in Washington, who have been ordered to join their re spective regiments. But Secretary Endicott is credited with a good deal of back-bone, «and will not be likely to modify his order. The Governments of Germany and England have made strong efforts to turn the tide ot emigration from the United States to their own colonies, but they have not met with a large measure of success. In seeking new homes the people of the Old World consult their own best interests, with out regard to the representations or wishes of the governments which they abandon, and for ...

/Rather Lose Life Than Limb. From the Boston Herald. Miss Lena Solyel is a Swede, 22 years of age, employed as a domestic in the family of Mr. Adams, 223 West Newton street. About 9:30 o'clock last evening, while returning fromRox bury on the East Boston horse car, she alighted at the corner of Treniont and YVest Newton streets, when a Brooklyn car going the opposite di rection ran over her left knee and thigh. She was taken to the City Hos pital, where it was decided that she could not live unless the injured limb was amputated.. She positively refus ed to have it taken off, arguing that she was poor and friendless, and had rather die at once than be a cripple for life._ She was perfectly cool and collected, and, although suffering se vere pain, seemed as calm and reason ed as philosophically about the remov al of her injured member as if it was one of the most trivial matters possi ble. As the physicians have no au thority to force her decision, she will probably die, in case she ...

rfsay I5EREMAN & WILSON, Proprietors. WADENA, MINNESOTA. This is a month with an "r" in it, and oysters are abundant on the coast, and soon will be, in every sec tion of thecountry. The season opens bright for the oystermen and their patrons. There are now in India, completed or in progress, 15,000 miles of rail way. As the first railway was only opened in 1853 the progress of the system by which the whole peninsula will soon be gridironed will be seen to he remarkable. The interest to Amer ica in theso works is that they are en abling that denselypopulated country to lay down wheat in London and Liv erpool at prices which, the lan guage of trade, soon promise "to defy competition." Jt is again reported that Emperor Alexander of Russia is about to pro mulgate a constitution for the people embracing parliamentary rights. This is a concession that may or may not amount to much. The divine right fraud is never for a moment forjgotten. An emperor giving people a consti tution looks ...

'lffce -farmer. BEREMAN A WILSON, Proprietors. WADENA, MINNESOTA. The late frosts extended to all parts of New England and did a good deal of damage. The cholera alarm still prevails in Europe and it is regarded as almost certain that the dreadful disease will visit this country during the year. Officials are making efforts to keep it out but with so many points of entry, its exclusion is almost impossible. The disturbance of the relations be tween Germany and Spain is not likely to result in actual hostilities. Spanish pride has received a severe shock, but Spain is too wise to go to war with a power that could crush her in a month. The resources of diplomacy will settle the matter. The tendency of modern civilization is to mass population. In 1790, one thirteenth of the population of the United States was found in cities of more than 8,000 population in 1800, one-twenty-fifth in 1810 and also 3 820, one-twentieth in 1830, one-six teenth in 18-10, one-twelfth in 1850, one-eighth in...

It is supposed that the mortality Among the shoulder Straps since the war is phenomenal. The comparatively low cost of coal delivered in the principal northwestern cities will materially diminish family expenses the coining winter. Coal is coming into general use in places along the lines of railroads, save where wood is abundant and cheap. Delaware and the Maryland penin sula sent 8,000,000 baskets of peach, es to market this year, and the grow ers are nearly two millions richer than they were two months ago. Some of the trees yielded seven baskets of fruit and net yields of $800 to $500 were not uncommon. The New York State fair at Albany is considered a great suceeapfc! The gate receipts foot up nearly $30,000, as against less than ^1,0,000 last year at Elmira. This is satisfactory, but the receipts fall short of the receipts at the late Minnes...

Although tho Turks, not being Christians, may not harbor this comfortable belief, the history of European politics during much more than half a century establishes couolu sively its vority. Peter and Frederick carved and denounced poor Poland without inviting to the feast any of their neighbors, and perhaps it was tlio completeness of their success that caused the former to try his skill as head carver upon Turkey. In that ex periment Jtiowover, he was not suffered to proceed without assistance, and ever since then, at not very long inter vals, the busiuoss of carviug Turkey has occupied the attention of all the "great powers" of Europe.
